Just when you thought Carly Rae Jepsen couldn’t get anymore cooler with her Music Video, she enlisted Tom Hanks. Carly Rae Jepsen released the video for her song “I Really Like You”.
The video pretty much follows Tom throughout his day as he is apparently late to meet Carly for a meeting (I’m going to guess a meeting but for all we know they are hooking up for now). The kicker of the music video is that Tom Hanks is lip syncing the song as girls swipe right on his Tinder Profile (This means you like someone and that you want to bang them, I explain them in this.) Then we get to see that Tom and Carly’s meeting was a rigorous dance number.
What’s not working in the video? The video makes little to no sense. While it’s funny, it just awkward and not really weird. The video for her smash “Call Me Maybe” was like this but actually made more sense, even with the surprise ending. I think if it could have been like that, it would have been 100x better.
Overall, the video is an okay video. It’s not something that will be like “Call Me Maybe” music video was but it good for one time view.
Here’s the video for your viewing pleasure:
